Is it possible to lose weight without starving yourself? The answer is yes and it is actually pretty simple. You can lose up to 10 pounds in just 1 week with the amazing cabbage soup diet. It is cheap and low in calories. It is very popular among many dieters and celebrities. And it is very easy to make.
Here’s how to make it:
The diet lasts for 7 days. During this time you can eat as much cabbage soup as you want but you should limit your consumption of other food. It may sound boring, but at least you won’t be starving.
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1-4 garlic cloves
- 2 green peppers
- 2 onions
- 2-4 tomatoes
- 3 carrots
- 1 bunch celery
- 1 head of cabbage
- 1-2 cubes of Bouillon (optional)
- 4-5 cups of water (add more if needed)
-First, you need to chop all vegetables, but keep them separated
-Then heat the olive oil on medium heat in a large soup pot
-Add the garlic and the onions and cook them for about 2 minutes or until the onions are slightly browned
-Add the carrots and cook for another 2 minutes
-Add the rest of the vegetables
-Pour in water and the Bouillon cubes
-Cook until it boils and then simmer the vegetables until they reach the desired tenderness
It is very important to drink a lot of water during this diet – at least 8 glasses (or 64 ounces) of water every day. This will help the proper function of the kidneys i.e. help you to get rid of the toxins in the body and prevent constipation, which is very important for losing weight.
During this diet, make sure to consume only the products that are allowed. Don’t consume zero-calorie foods such as diet sodas because they contain artificial sweeteners and other unhealthy ingredients that may interfere with the diet and its efficiency.
If you start feeling dizzy or sick, eat a small piece of chicken or an egg. If that doesn’t help, stop the diet! You can try it another time.
During the 7 days diet, avoid going out. And do not start another cabbage soup diet for at least 2 weeks. You can exercise if you want, but be careful not to lose too much energy. If you start feeling dizzy or sick, stop exercising immediately!
